The Coda by Arbor has already won numerous awards, which is no wonder because this board can do it all. It is more than suited for a plethora of terrains and applications from tight trees to pillow lines, chutes, and backcountry kickers. This version comes with the Camber System for a more poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance .
Designed for more aggressive riders who charge both in and out of bounds.
Mountain twin, for the switch riding advantages of a twin snowboard with just that little extra float in the fluffy stuff.
The Camber shape is an advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail. The 'Thunderhead' tip and tail shape offers big mountain versatility and speed in the deepest snow. Arbors Grip Tech offers very good edge control, especially on icy slopes. They extend slightly beneath your bindings for an extreme good edge-hold on hard-pack. Full of power when you need it and playful when you don't. The Uprise Fenders system pull the outside contact zones off the snow. This means that the edges at the contact points on Nose and Tail are angled upwards by 3°. This results in a playful feeling without catching an edge.
The medium flex of the Coda is perfect for high speed and technical riding while remaining flexible enough for advanced freestyle moves.
At the Double Barrel II core, two bamboo struts run tip-to-tail down the center of this upgraded Poplar core. Bamboo adds power and strength for bigger mountain performance. The topsheet is made from sustainably sourced ash wood and is called Ash Power Ply construction. The natural grain creates the style Arbor has been known for since they launched twenty years ago. This technology does not only look good but also improves the strength, durability, and return of a snowboard. The Mixed Glassing provides a Triax over Biax fiberglass lay-up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, & more. The 360 Rail is a fully wrapped sidewall that eliminates the need for tip fill. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability. The sintered base is an industry standard for quality base materials. Provides a moderate balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention.

The Arbor Collective has been making snowboards for the last three decades. Having lasted so long and having legends such as Bryan Iguchi endorse their boards speaks for the quality. Arbor is built to last.
